Here is my very first ever, complete crocheted granny square, which I finished last night, and I'm already half way through my second. I'll think I'll make it up into a blanket for our new lounge area (and yes, I am still knitting the other throw blanket..it's taking forever but I'm over half way there - yay!)
When my parents and Nan were visiting, we (Mum, Nan, Danielle, Kate, her Mum and her MIL) all went to the Craft & Quilt Show in the city. Lots of fantastic handmade items were seen and lots of ideas and 'want to learn' skills resulted for me (thus, the crochet..lol).
Below is my loot from the day. My gorg sis Danielle bought me the 'Kaleidoscope' book which I had been wanting since the day it was released. The other items I bought from the Kelani stand (as well as an Aunty Cookie Eye Chart Screen Print Cushion Front). I am in love with this Amy Butler August Fields fabric - I plan to make the flower cushion from the Amy Butler pattern. But first I'm going to try it out on some more disposable fabric :-P
And here are my purchases from this past week, and from the outing Dan and I took to the Amitie Fabric shop in Bentleigh - they had 50% off Amy Butler fabrics which was just fabulous - how could I resist?...he he
